"Reptilian/slanted" eyes in Goldens

On another thread, someone made a reference to some Goldens having almost oriental looking eyes. Is this visible when they are puppies?
Does anyone know anything about the genetics of that eye type?

I was just wondering where that type of eye could have originated. I found this describing the dogs that made up the GR breed:
In the ancestry of the Golden Retriever are water spaniels including those bred near Inverness in Scotland, the Newfoundland, the Irish Setter and the Bloodhound.
Does any of these dogs have that type of eye?

I would be interested to learn more, Maddie's eyes are slanted and I know it's not breed standard but I love her anyways.

Anyways I'll attach a puppy and adult picture. I think her eyes do still look the same ...

Genetics. Eye shape. Whether hair is curly or straight. All determined by ancestor genes that have been inherited.

So, if there is a different eye shape, it would have to be inherited. So I was asking if any of the predecessor dogs (in the list that I found of possibly ancestor dogs to the Golden) had that "oriental" eye shape.

I was wondering if anyone had thought about this.

Okay. I never heard of oriental eye before.

I had never heard of or thought about eye shape in Goldens either, until I read another thread where someone referred to that eye type as "oriental". It just got me to thinking about the genetics of the eye shape.
